Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Octagon House in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. The house was featured as the second-most haunted house in Wisconsin on the History Channel show "Hidden Passages". It was built in a Native American village in around in 1814 along the banks of the Fond du Lac River. The river has been routed so it doesn't flow by the house any more. Isaac Brown, a carpenter and trader with Native Americans, grew fearful of attacks from the natives in 1856. So he built an Orson Fowler-designed eight-sided house which was designed for hiding. It contained nine secret passageways and spaces. A tunnel was built between the house and a woodshed which was used as a safe house on the Underground Railway. Brown gave the house to his son Edwin A. Brown as a wedding present. Brown and his wife Ruth Edward (Pier) Brown had three children in the house. The house became a rental unit in 1900, and it remained a rental until the late 1960s to early 1970s.
